Whether it’s wrangling cattle or just your buddies on the weekend, pickup truck owners don’t have time to waste.

That means no drilling, no wasted weekend hours and no cursing tools in your garage when you could be getting stuff done.

Once you've slid the plate inside the hole, tighten the four bolts and the plate around the bottom lip of the stake hole. Be sure that either the mount or mounting plate have direct metal-to-metal contact with the frame in order to achieve a solid ground.|

Firestik CB Antenna Mount: The square holes in the bed rails of full-sized pickup trucks are great for a no-drill antenna mount. The flat upper bracket is 6" (152mm) long and extends out over the bed rail, so you can mount your antenna without losing the ability to mount a camper shell. Includes stud mount, stainless steel brackets and hardware, and a gasket to protect the vehicle finish.
IMPORTANT: When mounted in either of the stake-hole pockets directly behind the vehicle cab, antennas under 4' will experience substantial reflection from the metallic corners of the cab (between the side and rear glass). As a result, shorter antennas will likely be difficult -- if not impossible -- to tune to a satisfactory SWR. For this reason, we recommend using an antenna longer than 4' with this mount.
Great looking idea and craftsmanship, my F150 has a factory bed liner that doesn't fit well with the mount. I will play with it some more, but I may have to do some Ozark Engineering to get it to work. May even bolt it straight to the bed rail
Was everything as advertised
Easy install would recommend
Arrived on time, works as advertised. These folks have made ordering and install fun. Keep it up!
Moved it from rear to front. Current F150 bed side is wider at the front and the antenna electrical connector rubs the side, and then cannot install the the cable ;( Also you MUST use copper based anti seize On the screws or they will gall and corrode making it hard to move after even a month or two.
